I Can Hear Spring Beckoning...

Yesterday, the sun shone bright, but the air was still crisp and I had to run back in for my sweater..

Let's see what this day brings... the sun is shining through our windows as a greeting... and her voice is the sound of crop dusters....doing their thing.. what joy does that sound evoke? The sound of a new season..?.. a new beginning...?... and HOPE... :) !

I have emersed myself in work for the last 6 weeks and I can truely say I have grown alot as an artist.. Studying a period in history and trying to capture it's vibe.. has made me so much more aware of the thinking ...... the simplest designs have so much thought behind them . I am pleased with the journey and where it has led me.

Stepping outside..makes me hopeful.. and curious... What will this day bring.. ??
It may be too soon to put away my sweater, but that day is coming soon..

What a weenie..

It's sad to see that my earlier posts were about the fear of flying!! I am a big weenie, when it comes to flying.. but I have taken a leap of faith... and have embarked on a new collection ... that is inspired by history... it's a journey into the past.. that will arrive somewhere in the future.

Ha ha! I have been hard at work on the jewelry for my next show at Summer Wind Gallery.. I
wanted...NO..needed to do something here it is..

....ART DECO....... baby!!

It is such an interesting time in history..designs were very simple.. the lines very clean and geometric. I discovered that costume jewelry was originally intended to go with one certain outfit.... not so different from my statement pieces... one must first buy the jewelry, then buy the outfit to complement the necklace!!
